    Hi Guys!

    Updating your devices to gingerbread will be ok but it will loose the feature of EAP-SIM on your devices. This is the next gen wifi connectivity authorization.

  • Steven KUny

    You that the all options must be checked ie “Re-Partition, Auto Reboot and F.Reset Time”. However in the picture you give, only Auto Reboot and R REset Time are checked? also you said that “Now, as soon as you update all the option fields with the check marks as shown in the red circle below, you will have to next choose the PIT file”. But nothing is circled in red? My P1000 is now showing a phone and a triancle with an exclamation mark in it connected to a computer. Am I bricked and what do I do?

    Can anyone please confirm if the tablet camera continues to work after the upgrade? I’ve already upgraded to CyanogenMod version of Gingerbread earlier this year but the camera functionality was broken since then. If this upgrade doesn’t solve the problem then I probably won’t bother flash the rom again…

    Mad stuff. Followed the instructions and now my Samsung Galaxy S that I purchased in China now runs everything the way Google intended. No more Chinese only app stores. No more locked out Google Android Market. Google Maps and Picasa now run smoothly on the new Gingerbread OS. Only problem is that the Alarm Clock doesn’t work any more (yeah I don’t know why either).

  • afra

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

    make sure uve closed all applications on ur computer as well(anti- virus and firewall turned off)
    the fone updates within 5 mins and u r good to go.

    this is confusing! I just got a Galaxy Tab P1000. when connected to Samsung Kies; it said the firmware needs upgrade to 2.3. I follows the steps through till completion. Now system information still says the version is 2.2. I even tried to download the latest version of Android Market and got the message: that version is not compatible with my device’s firmware???

    Connected to Kies again and it says the firmware is the latest version: PDA:JM5 / PHONE:JM2 / CSC:JM6 (XSS)

    Any clues????

Since upgraded to this version, I have problems with my Tab. My phone froze often when there is an incoming call and I have to switch on and off the phone to get it working again. It is also slow and I am getting frustrated with the TAB. Have anyone had a similar problem? Please help. Thanks

  • Lobo666

    So far I am happy, all functions are working and I can install and run all programs I could run before on my rooted Froyo :)
    A good description of what is what in these fields and files would be nice to have somewhere on the net – without those I see my future struggle when the next upgrades are coming out. I can see into the future :) :)
    Good luck for everyone.

  • Lobo666

    Thanks a lot for the advice. I do not have a clue, what is what, and what I actually have done, but finally my device is back working, with Gingerbread 2.3.3 / I would appreciate if you told me what I do have, and what should I still do in order to root and unlock the device (if required ?? I do not know).
    Here is what I ended up doing:
    I have downloaded and extracted all the 2.3.3 files from the site:
    [some site url]
    Basically I had the files:
    P1000XXJMQ ## GT-P1000_M.PIT Version 2.3.3 04 May 2011
    GT-P1000-CSC-MULTI-OXXJK2 November 2010
    GT-P1000_M.PIT
    First trial was:
    I have tried with all three options including repartitioning to put the
    above PIT file: gt-p1000_mr.pit (I am not sure was it the DL, or the extracted one from the GSM TAR??)
    GSM file: P1000XXJQ1_P1000XXJQ1_P1000XXJPZ_HOME.tar
    Started Odin, got the write error message and ended up with the phone–!–computer screen…
    Second trial was the same,
    but also included the CSC file option in Odin…
    The result was the same…after that I have Reset Odin, reinitiated the tab to the phone–!–computer screen…
    Third trial was:
    I have tried with all three options including repartitioning to put the
    above PIT file: gt-p1000_mr.pit (I am not sure was it the DL, or the extracted one from the GSM TAR??)
    Left the GSM line and the Phone line empty
    Selected the
    CSC file: GT-P1000-CSC-MULTI-OXXJK2.tar.md5
    Started Odin 1.7 with the yellow box glowing
    Got completion of the task without write error, and the tab restarted with the restore screen (as I remember :( )
    On the restore screen (manually volume-up plus power buttons) i selected and ran:
    1. Factory restore with erase all user data as the second selection
    2. Wipe cache
    3. Restart
    And the next I have seen after soon, my tab started up, having gingerbread and my data entry works, tab is not resetting any more, my previous provider is reacting to my calls – seems everything working :) :) – too bad at this moment, I do not know what else I am missing… Could you please tell me what I have, and what else I need to improve?? Rooting? Unlock?? or what and how? It is really hard to find a good description on the web of what is what and how to use, and how to do things to get Gingerbread right, or even how to do a “Ground Zero” restore of the Tab when things go wrong.
    I think I was simply lucky so far – I wish the same for all of you. Finally here is what I read from the
    1. Settings-About device menu:
    Model: GT-P1000, Firmware: 2.3.3, Baseband: P1000XXJHA, Kernel: 2.6.35.7 se.infra@SEP-52 #2, Build: Gingerbread.XXJQ1
    2. from entering *#1234#:
    PDA: nothing (empty string)
    Phone: P1000XXJHA
    CSC: nothing (empty string)
    Any advise will be appreciated.

  • lobo666

    I have reinstalled all the old stuff, did hard reset with erase user data. also did wipe cache option. Still I see the same problem, until I click eveything seems to work, install, file browsing, calls, game running, but when i try to enter text, or when I end a game, the tab resets and restarts. I have also tried to install 2.3.3 after unlock applied, and before inserting T-Mobile SIM, the same write error. I stuck now where neither old nor new system is working. What can be tried next?

  • lobo666

    Clear the cache?? Would you please tell how?
    Can I clear the system, can I format before the process?
    Tnx for any advise.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      you can clear cACHE from the recovery mode!

  • lobo666

    Could I run the old unlocking process and upgrade before setting up the new SIM? I have to repeat the whole old process anyway since with the current files my tab is useless. It is resetting when I try to type anything in any input field.
    Or could I remove some directories or files to fix this write error and upgrade then?

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      yes you can do that! i hope you have cleared the cache!!

    Hi it was a USA T-Mobile, since then I have rooted and put on a Great Britain Rom 2.2, I am using it with T-Mobile in Europe since then. How can I tell if it is locked? If so what do I need to do?
    When I am trying to put Froyo back, everything seems to be fine, but touching any input type field will reset my tab immediately.

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela NeaL Pradeep

      i would not advice to update as this is a locked TAB

  • Lobo666

    I have tried in many ways, I end up with the same. My Galaxy is a US T-Mobile one. It is running a rooted GB Froyo kernel with the phone option working (before :) (…now I am with same as above

      IS YOUR TAB LOCKED TO A NETWORK?

  • Lobo666

    I am stuck, I need to go back to the previous version, and I am sorry for that! In short, I still need advise.
    Good luck for all of you!

  • Lobo666

    Hi Guys, Nothing is perfect. The above link at least saved my tab, but does not work perfectly either, plus it is a Froyo :(.
    The link I followed was from this Youtube page:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_s6pPNoLz8
    it looks O.K.

  • Lobo666

    Hi Guys,
    It has worked out for me very well. I think there is a bug in one of these programs downloaded here. Also I think the first comment on this page concerning accuracy about posting, is correct. I also see, it is mentioned here to click in options the Re-partition, and on the screenshot attached it is not clicked. There are some confusions here.
    On the other hand, many thanks to you guys, showing that it is possible to upgrade my tab!!!!!! It is really great, Samsung and Google are far behind! Next time I will go for an IPad anyway :). The only attraction in this model for me was the phone option, and – that time – the camera, but it is not unique anymore.
    In short, I went to look for other files to upgrade my gizmo, and there are instructions and files, which worked in my case:

    I did not see any problem with my samsung drivers, but here was a link for installing those / just in case I also did that, and I do not know if it has contributed to the solution or not.
    Anyway, I hope it will help others to solve any similar problem :), good luck!

  • Lobo666

    Please help! I have tried all the above, first ended up with the samsung logo, since then with the Phone-!-Computer icon.
    I have tried with odin 1.3, 1.7 and 1.82. 1.7 and 1.82 gave the same results:

    Removed!!
    Added!!
    Odin v.3 engine (ID:4)..
    File analysis..
    SetupConnection..
    Initialzation..
    Set PIT file..
    DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
    Get PIT for mapping..
    Firmware update start..
    boot.bin
    Sbl.bin
    param.lfs
    zImage
    factoryfs.rfs
    cache.rfs
    hidden.rfs

    Complete(Write) operation failed.
    All threads completed. (succeed 0 / failed 1)
    I was running odin in admin mode also, and with or without restarting odin, but no difference. Ran it with and without repartitioning, also no defference. Please help, I do not know what to do. In the SW it was showing P1000, outside I do not see any similar productID. Thanks for any help.

      kindly follow the procedure again and is your tab locked ?

    I tried to upgrade to gingerbread. I selected the partitian option. It went on and shown a failure. Now I lost all. when I start what I get is a phone symbol and PC signal with interconnecting symbol with a warn sign.

    What Can I do next? Please advice

    • http://twitter.com/pradeepneela Neal

      is your tab working properly?

    • Khalique

      I downloaded the Odin V1.7 and tried with just the “Auto Reboot” and also the “F:Reset Time” and it worked. just connect your tab with pc and open odin in pc don’t try to enter in download mood you can’t.
      and for 2.3.3 CFW check that click it will help you a lot.

    I initially failed to update my device may be cuz of Odin 1.3 and then when i disconnected, it showed the “mobile connected to pc (error)”. I had previously downloaded Odin 1.7. I opened it, contrary to instructions i didn’t check “re-partion” and followed the process…it took sometime but got updated.

        After odin with main firmware file n pit
        again you have to odin (steps are here)

        1. Place tab in DL mode again and hook it up to your computer. Power button and Volume Down at the same time.

        2. Place dbdata.tar into the PDA section in ODIN (DO NOT SELECT REPARTITION)

        3. Hit start and it will flash the .tar file.

        4. Shut down the tab.

        This step is missing here, so just for knowledge purpose
        Does it requires to follow this step? b’coz there were no review regarding stucking device.
        One Q if it requires thn many ppl here successfully updated too.
        I am confused

  • Paul

    Hi,

    Thanks for the instructions and files. I could upgrade from 2.2 to 2.3.3 after using Odin 1.7.

    The only problem now is that the Email app keeps on force closing. Would it help to do a complete factory reset and wipe cache and try again? The upgrade did not seem to delete any of my apps/data.

    Thanks again
    Paul

  • Ram

    Somebody Pl send me the complete Instructions how to upgrade to 2.3.3 my email id

  • Randy

    These instruction are incomplete, there’s another step and file to load after the firmware called “dbdata” then you have to clear some cache. Search the web and find the rest of the procedure if your Tab is froze.

  • http://romeoecho.multiply.com Ridu

    Yeah, My tab was not starting up as well as. It was on download mode, and suddenly powered off. Then I used ODIN3 V1.7 and follow the rules, and now i get my gingerbread.

  • Uday

    Jit, I was hoping the guys at Android Advices would correct the errors in their instructions but even after so many people have pointed out this, they have not done anything!! I am really surprised as I thought this site was quite good. Honestly, this is really disappointing of them.

  • Jit

    This instruction sucks, its not working at all. many contradictory statements provided and it confused a lot….

    Hello,

      @jp this update is the beta release!

    Can someone clarify if the Repartition box needs to be ticked or not, the text says it does but the screenshots show it not ticked, so it is confusing for those of us relying on accurate instructions for this upgrade.

    help android device users in China to Hi,everybody

    We,google fans in china ,is very disappointed.The Google Android Market is not available in China mainland,Device’s manufacturer release a android devices,they will usually meet the requests of communist party of China,to remove some features or block some service ,such as Android Market ,Youtube,facebook,twitter etc…

    Most of android market has not been pre-installed on android OS that have been authorized by device’s manufacturer or carries. My Samsung Tab P1000 has only a samsung app application pre-installed ,no android market application pre-installed. I installed android market without error prompt on my Tab P1000.There is no problem found when I install it. but Android market
    cannot run well.Once I tap its icon,it disappear at once.

    could anybody give a hand to android OS users in China to guide we how to fix and provide some tools ?enable Android market app!

    • Cross

      Yes you can fix that issue cuz i fixed mine as well. Just update your firmware to 2.3 as this topic wer saying or upgrade ur tab to any other froyo 2.2ver. here some tip might help you

  • Can

    I have previously installed 2.3 from another source, but I was not sure integrity of that version. So I installed this ROM.
    Odin v1.3 did not work for me too. It stuck at “Downloading. Do not turn off target!” screen. I had to turn off the device by long pressing power button. When I turned on the “phone and computer logo” showed up. Then I could use v1.7, and succesfully installed.
    Thank youı.

      can i ask is tat v1.7 can read ur Tab even it Show ” phone and computer logo “

    Hi,
    I tried on the tab I purchased from India and it failed when I tried as above. (Tried with “Re Partition”, “Auto Reboot” and also the “F:Reset Time”. ) It ended up giveing an write error and my tab started giving the mobile and computer symbol.
    I re tried without the re-partition option yet it failed.
    Finally I downloaded the Odin V1.7 and tried with just the “Auto Reboot” and also the “F:Reset Time” and it worked :-)

    Guys, you need to edit before posting. This is an update note for the P1000 to Gingerbread XXJQ1but one para talks about it getting updated to Froyo XWJMK. You are doing a great job but please remember that there are millions of people like me who may get confused. Also, it is always good to have a small section on what are the improvements we can expect on updating to Gingerbread from Froyo. Cheers

    @neal.
    i thought you wrote that the firmware version is GINGERBREAD 2.3.3 XXJQ1 but at the tail end of your tutorials, you wrote that “So, that’s it you have now successfully upgraded to the new latest firmware of XWJMK Froyo 2.2 version for your Galaxy Tab.”
    what are the enhancements in this firmware”
